Not to mention that the 85L mkii is faster than the original... though a turtle is technically faster than a snail... but still.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

XS->60D->5d Mkiii:18-55->24-105L:75-300->55-250->70-300->70-200 f4L USM->70-200 f/2.8L USM->70-200 f/2.8L IS Mkii:50 f/1.8->50 f/1.4->100L-> 85mm f/1.8 USM-> 8mm -> 85mm f/1.2L mkii

I am shocked.. shocked I say, at the responses to this question. ;D 

Imagine asking this question on a Canon fanboy site and finding out that the vast majority of members say they would re-buy Canon.  Never saw that coming. LoL

I would imagine that if this same question were to be asked on a Nikon fanboy site, the responses would be equally "surprising"   ;D

OP, when you posted on Canon Rumors, did you really expect people to respond "If I lost everything, I would dump Canon?"

That's why I love coming to Canon Rumors.   8)
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Back in the 80's I had a Konica Autoreflex TC with a 40mm f/1.8 (OK, I still have it). I also had bought a Sigma 70-200 (or 70-210) lens. When I lost that lens (YES, lost! it's a big story!) a colleague suggested that I turn to Canon. I got an EOS 620 with 35-105, 100-300 and a 420EZ flash. So switching brands can happen. Admittedly not often but it is still possible.

Interesting approach...

One of my 5D III ended up on ebay. The other will be there when 1DX II is announced ;)
